Taco Bell president dodges pot question in humorous Reddit AMA


Taco Bell may have made a fortune off of the effects of cannabis, but that doesn’t mean they necessarily support the legalization of the plant.
In an Ask Me Anything interview yesterday on Reddit, Taco Bell president Brian Nicco had a tongue-in-cheek diversion to one user’s query as to where the fast food chain stands on pot legalization.

davidsmeaton: Does Taco Bell support the current push for legalization of marijuana? I figured it might be something you guys would have a vested interest in 🙂
RealTacoBell: We make tacos, not laws.

At least they know what they are (sort of) good at and to stick with it. The pot questions rolled on…

Whoa_yall: How much have your sales increased in Colorado since the legalization of marijuana?
RealTacoBell: 420% (But seriously what is 4/20?)

We’re pretty sure that he knows what 4/20 is. We would be shocked to find out if that isn’t one of their busiest days of the year in this country.
Interestingly, though Nicco didn’t take a stand on cannabis – he admitted the one thing he did want to associate his restaurant with: booze.

Cheeseheadfoamy: Is there some type of dream food you would want to add to the menu, but haven’t had a chance to yet?
RealTacoBell: Cerveza.
